Excellent key lime pie

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
CRUST
1¼ cup Vanilla wafer crumbs
1½ teaspoon Lime rind
1 tablespoon Sugar
½ cup Melted butter or margarine
Filling
1 Envelope gelatin
1 cup Sugar
¼ teaspoon Salt
4 Egg yolks
4 Egg whites
½ cup Lime juice
¼ cup Water
1 cup Whipped heavy cream
1 teaspoon Grated lime peel
litre Green food coloring

Mix up the crust ingredients and smooth 'em over the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Now bake that crust at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes. Now let it cool down. Mix up the gelatin, ½ cup sugar and salt in a suacepan. Now beat up the eggs, lime juice and water together and stir it into the gelatin mix. Now cook it over medium heat, stirring, just until the mixture comes to a boil. Now remove it from the heat. Now mix in the lime peel and green food coloring. Only put in enough food coloring to give it a light green color, probably a couple of drops. Now chill, stirring occasionally until mixture thickens. Now beat the egg whites, and gradually add the sugar, beating it until it gets stiff. Now fold in gelatin mixture and the cream. Pile all this into the shell, and chill until firm. Before serving top it with some additional whipped cream. Now trim it up with the grated lime peel. Be sure and serve this one to your out-of-town visitors for a big hit! File
